How is it prevented?

There is an effective vaccine for both Hepatitis A and B. Unfortunately, there is no vaccine to prevent Hepatitis C right now. Other ways to prevent viral hepatitis include: always practicing good hand hygiene, do not share needles or other injection drug equipment, do not share personal items such as razors or toothbrushes, always using a condom during sex, and always assuming blood that is not yours could be infectious. Hepatitis A and B vaccines are offered at the LaSalle County Health Department, by appointment. Call 815-433-3366 and ask for Adult Immunizations.
